With the way that Kevin Love has been playing along with the fact that he was taken high in the draft I can see him easily making it to play in the Rookie / Sophomore game. My question is, do you think that Jason Thompson will get past over again for Beasley because Beasley has been playing better lately, or do you think that if the averages for both players were to stay the same that Thompson will get to play instead?
Averages so far:
Thompson: 15.3 PPG, 9.2 RPG, 2.1 APG, 0.6 SPG, 1.0 BPG
Beasley: 15.4 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 1.2 APG, 0.9 SPG, 0.55 BPG
Thompson should go no matter what. I dont know how beasley get there but if should not replace Thompson who has star written all over him.
i hope not. Beasley's has more talent but JT is a very hard worker and plays with a lot of passion and when he matures i believe he can be a pretty good pf in this league maybe he can be a back up center behind Lopez cuz hes been playing a lot of center this year with the regression of Spencer Hawes
I've always liked Thompson's game. He's a talented player with a good deal of potential, and he's got the size and mobility to go with it. I'd be shocked if he was past over for the Rookie Challenge.
they can slide beasley over to the small forward since the 2008 draft had a lack of
beasley showed off last years game
so did durant and green
plus oden is out for the season so they have room for another player
did lopez make it last year?
don't you guys see a little bit of jason thompson in lamarcus aldridge
I thought about putting that in my post...I see alot of Aldridge in him, except he seems to be more willing to play on the low post..
No... I don't see Thompson in Aldridge or vice versa. Two different players. Aldridge has more natural talent, skill and length than Thompson, but Thompson is more of a banger and rebounder. If Aldridge had Thompson's stuff with his talent, skill and length... He'd be one of the best power forwards in the league.
I actually like the comparison to Al Horford better when talking about Thompson though, except he's a better offensive player than Horford..
Thompson is overrated...Star written all over him?....no way.
Reasons why you think he is overrated?
